A dust storm that has rolled across Victoria’s north-west has shrouded Mildura in thick red dust, plunging the town into darkness in a matter of minutes.   The Bureau of Meteorology said the dust storm hit Mildura airport about 5pm, as winds reached 57 km/h.  Mildura resident and social worker Brando Smith, 28, said the sky went from blue to grey to orange and then to pitch black within 15 minutes.
